Dell has begun shipping its first smartphone available to US customers. The Aero is currently up for grabs on Dell.com for a respectable $100 when paired with a two-year data plan through AT&T. If you'd rather not be tied to Ma Bell's hip, you can buy the handset contract-free for $300.
The entry-level Android device features a 3.5-inch 640x360 touchscreen, a 624MHz Marvell processor, a five-megapixel camera, 2GB of onboard storage with microSD expansion, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as support for UMTS/HSPA 3G and GSM/EDGE networks.
Interestingly, it only runs Android 1.5, but Dell has informed Engadget that it's a "superset" with a "tremendous amount of customization." Added functionality includes handwriting and Facebook support. For what it's worth, the Aero is said to be one of the lightest Android offerings around at 3.67oz.
